The hookups and heartbreaks of Generation are coming back for another round very soon. The buzzy new teen series explored the diversity in dating as a young person growing up today in its first eight episodes that dropped earlier in 2021, and now the series is returning to cap off its debut season with another eight episodes that look even more intense and dramatic. Get ready for cute dates, teary breakups, and a whole lot of queer excellence, because Generation Season 1, Part 2 is on its way to give you life, and the first look at the new episodes is absolutely packed with drama.
When Generation premiered on March 11, in introduced viewers to a diverse group of high schoolers exploring different facets of their sexualities and identities in a conservative community in Orange County. Immediately, the show drew comparisons to HBO’s other big ensemble teen series Euphoria, which seemed fair, considering both shows put a spotlight on various LGBTQ+ teenagers figuring things out. Generation doesn’t go as dark as Euphoria, though; it instead offers up a more chill and lighthearted approach to storytelling. There’s still plenty of drama, though, and the second half of Season 1 already looks like it will deliver some big moments.
